Background. Patients with COVID-19 have varying degrees of impairment in respiratory, physiological and psychological functions, and an individual, but at the same time, generally accepted therapy should be selected for each of them. However, as before, there is no qualitative evidence confirming the effectiveness of methods of medical rehabilitation and sanatorium-resort treatment for patients with new coronavirus infection COVID-19.
Objective. Analysis and discussion of strategies for medical rehabilitation and sanatorium-resort treatment for patients with new coronavirus infection COVID-19.
Methods. The literature search was conducted from July 1 to August 1, 2021 using PubMed, Medline, PubMed Central, ScienceDirect, Google Scholar. Articles describing clinical features, epidemiology of COVID-19, COVID-19 without rehabilitation, rehabilitation protocols and the consequences of COVID-19 were excluded.
Results. Database search revealed 95 studies; of these, 26 were delexludedeted after review of the full text. Out of a sample of 39 published articles, only one was a randomized controlled trial from China that documented the effectiveness of respiratory rehabilitation in elderly people with COVID-19 discharged from hospital.
Conclusion. Medical rehabilitation protocols should be individualized depending on the specific condition of the patient. Effective inclusion of respiratory rehabilitation and sanatorium-resort treatment for COVID-19 survivors will accelerate their functional recovery and prevent future complications.
